Construction Inspection

RK&K has one of the largest, and most credentialed construction inspection (CI) forces in the mid-Atlantic region. We are experienced in providing CI on a state and district-wide basis and quickly fill requests with certified inspectors. Our inspectors are also trained for each specific assignment and upon arriving to the project, are Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10-hour trained and have received all appropriate certifications including materials testing, erosion and sediment control as well as their work zone specialist certification through the American Traffic Safety Service Association (ATSSA). Our inspectors truly are an extension of the owner’s staff–performing project duties professionally, cooperatively, and with the owner’s best interest in mind.

Our documentation expertise is a critical component of the RK&K QA/QC Program. Whether a small utility project requiring inspector’s daily records or a $100M interchange requiring in-depth, web-based project controls system, RK&K has gained a reputation for knowing what system will best meet the project challenges, and are cost effective. Our focus on having a thorough, organized storehouse of project data to effectively evaluate changes and avoid claims is critical in protecting the owner. As with any QA/QC Program, it is imperative to have a complete understanding of the expectations. This is best communicated in a pre-activity meeting with the appropriate contractor and subcontractor personnel, verify means and methods, review the plans, and make it clear the testing required. Our persistence in this meeting helps our owners’ contractors build it right the first time.
